Home Beautiful|July 2020
With House Rules that included elegance, light and love, this striking renovation managed to fashion a calm and cool Hamptons-style aesthetic for one half of the NSW team, Lenore – and her partner, Michael.
The house, in Sydney’s western suburbs, proved to be a collaborative affair, with the teams creating a cohesive colour palette of blues (another House Rule) and greys, and allowing for a consistent flow between zones. “I felt the teams worked really well together in creating this home,” offers judge Kyly Clarke. “It just had a beautiful sense of harmony.”
Fellow judge Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen agreed. “What did work about this particular project is there was a cohesion to how the teams worked together,” he says. “They embraced the very rigorous colour palette to make a relatively small space look bigger.”
For judge and HB renovation expert Saul Myers, the major success of the home was the dark timber flooring, providing the perfect contrast to crisp white walls and a foundation that unites each zone and creates a sense of flow throughout the brick cottage.
